From the national bestselling author of Best Friends: a touching novel about five very different people navigating work—and life.

Alicia, Brice, and Caroline are the ABCs—three close friends who have been brought together while working at the cozy medical practice of Drs. Markowitz and Strub in Midburg, Ohio. But when Alicia and Dr. Strub begin an affair, a dramatic chain of events ensues that gradually but drastically changes the office environment—ultimately requiring all five coworkers to redefine their relationships to one another. Finally, a questionable business venture precipitates a tragedy that will either tear them apart or bring them closer together.

Touching and insightful, The Office of Desire will resonate with anyone who has ever experienced the unlikely alliances that develop at work, and seen what happens when those relationships are altered.

“Moody captures the easy back-and-forth of seemingly innocuous office banter and keeps things moving with a fluctuating plot that makes for a surprisingly addictive...read.”
The Washington Post
